It might be that you forgot to change the "client send" entry from
"only over encrypted lines" to "whatever".

from the exim4.conf.template

# Because AUTH LOGIN sends the password in clear, per default we only allow it·
# over encrypted connections. If you want to change this disable the existing· 
# "client send" entry and enable the one below without the "if !eq{$tls_cipher}
# by removing the hash-mark (#) at the beginning of the line.·
